Update on File Photo
In the March 8 issue, the Sun ran a picture of a Tiger baseball team from about 1966-67. Several of our readers sent us information regarding who the players were. After going to press last week, we received an email from Jim Batts giving some information about the picture as well as identifying everyone in the picture as follows: front row: Ronnie Lewis, David Howard, Jim Batts, Sam Baker, Joe Barrows, Stuart Green, and Jerry French. Back row: Coach Gene Razor, Randy Talley, Darrel Ginter, Ricky Horn, Ronnie (Smiley) Beck, Philip Spicer, and Coach Roy Benson. An interesting note is that Coach Benson was an alumnus of the Methodist Home. He drafted four Methodist boys so they could play. He picked them up and took them home after practice and games. The year after this picture the Tigers won the Championship.
